“When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can't make them change if they don't want to, just like when they do want to, you can't stop them.” ― Andy Warhol
People intend to change, but often don’t follow through. It has been my observation that most people don’t change until they hit bottom. Heart surgery and kidney removal will usually do it. Having your doctor inform you that you might have had a silent heart attack will usually do it.
The silver lining of hitting bottom health-wise is that you have more upside from exercise; the improvements are more profound, and they serve as powerful motivation to stick to an exercise program.
Starting an exercise program can be daunting if you don’t know what you are doing - how often, how long, how hard, and what kind of exercise should you do? You don’t want to spin your wheels with long hours in the gym.
An exercise program that requires you to go to a gym two or three times a week for an hour or more is useless if you don’t stick to it. At Austin Strength Training and New Orleans Strength Training our goal is not to see how often we can get you to come it in. We start from the premise that instead of seeing how much exercise you can withstand, we determine what’s the least amount that will produce the most improvement. You’ll improve each week and get to where you need to be. This is an exercise program you can stick to.
